Everybody to the YMCA – oh wait, we can't

Remember when your parents promised that Santa would bring you an XBox and then all you got were socks and some fruit? Well that's Christmas for Brant this year.

Two key projects in Brantford were denied funding: the much-needed Laurier-YMCA downtown sports complex, and the Brant Cultural Centre project. We also learned that Mohawk College has only a one-in-four chance of getting funding to take over the old Expositor building. And the much-needed water treatment plant in Oshweken, which should have been built three years ago, has not even been commenced.

Despite all Phil's bragging about being best friends with Aboriginal Affairs Chuck Strahl and Infrastructure Minister John Baird, he has failed to score funding for two key educational projects, and one crucial native reserve project.

It's ironic that in this recent political cartoon, Phil has to wear a nametag because, just like in Ottawa, nobody knows who the heck he is. When Brant's voters realize how much he has promised, and how much he has failed to deliver, he'll probably wish that nobody knows his name in Brantford as well.
